Coming home not working

Hi all,

New to all of this. I’ve set everything thing up although I can’t get the coming home to work.

I’ve logged into the ‘Out of home control’ and also enabled the routine for coming home, added my one room and set to dimmed. I’ve also enabled location aware but it just doesn’t seem to do anything.

Can anyone help please?

I have the same issue. I have my lights set to come on by proximity of my phone and sometimes they do, but often don’t or take ten minutes to come on after I’m already inside.

I have made sure my phone’s location services are enabled, made sure no power saving options are preventing apps from operating, etc.

I think a lot of these issues are due to these “smart” devices having to go through the cloud to these company’s servers. I am seriously considering a new one I saw recently that does not rely on Internet to function.

If you’re having an iPhone be sure to enable “..GPS all the time..” instead of “..while App is used..” for the Hue app. This fixed my issue but drains the mobile battery.

Thanks all. Am using Android and it’s odd. Even kicked it in using IFTT but seems temperamental. Friday night it worked perfect, came on as I pulled up in my drive and off as I left. Tonight I was in the room and it still hasn’t kicked in.

Kind of frustrating as was a big selling point for me
